Rockaway Becomes Kingdom Battlefield For NBC-TV Pilot

Rockaway was invaded last Tuesday and Wednesday by two armies battling for control over the Kingdom of New York. Helicopters roared overhead, Humvees rolled over Arverne By The Sea and uniformed soldiers roamed the peninsula's streets looking for food and a bathroom break. The activity, of course, was not real. All the action was part of a new television pilot called "Kings," which will air on NBC-TV in September. Starring Ian McShane, one of the stars of the cable drama "Deadwood," the story is about a modern kingdom run by a ruler in the King David mold. For more photos, see page 86.
